"The academic support at Ohio State, there is no way you can fail. Even if you're giving mimimal effort there is no way you can fail"
unfortunate but true.....for several schools
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Changing defenses||
Tennessee will be changing from a 4-3 to a 3-4. Probably not the best idea to change defenses while the coach is on the hot seat.
I know the Obrien ship has sailed but what does this mean for him? Does he fit in a 3-4? (Just curious about a local kid's future)

Wow. Wilson is amazing

To show better play in conference games you should list his stats in non conference games.

Over coming gene smith in the reply booth! Great game! Congrats seniors! Non cheating osu 0-1
|3 years 42 weeks ago||I think||
I think its going to be Posey or Harron. After they take the fall, agree to come back, don't get to play this year and don't get drafted. That would piss me off enough to talk......
Unfortunately thats what its going to take

Pick 6 by Miss St. After a rough start they are now looking good

As an Ohio U alum I'm proud to say I contributed to this honor. It was a great 5 years.
OU gets a lot of credit for big party weekends like Halloween but in my opinion the best way to experience it is to go on a "normal" weekend. Trust me you will have fun.

Just got home from work, poured a drink and enjoyed it while reading a "Hello post". It was so good I think I'll have another and read another Hello post. If Hoke and co. keep this up I'll have a serious hangover.....
Congrats to both.

USC also stonewalled the NCAA through the entire process. They thought they could get out of it without penalty.
OSU is cooperating and wants this over with as soon as possible. They bought themselves a 8 months by naming Fickle coach for the year. To have any shot a a legit coach the uncertainty needs to be resolved. An appeal will buy them this years recruiting class but who cares.
Question for the smart people: With USC's 2 year bowl ban, Jrs and Srs were allowed to transfer without sitting out a year (I think). Is that rule still in place? If so I would assume OSU will be able to sign as many as they can....hopefully 15 or less.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||I think it was going to be a||
I think it was going to be a small class for them but they will still get players. Too much talent in the state and a lot of them have always wanted to go.
I just hope we pull a couple of the best one. Taft HS, I'm looking at you.

I was thinking David Terrell.
It was nice to hear he will end up where he fits in best, not necessarily a package deal. They both would be great but he is probably a bigger get with who has already committed.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Walking arm and arm onto the||
Walking arm and arm onto the field when OSU played Navy two years ago was a nice gesture.
Honering our military during a press conference describing how the program will run during your half year suspension is a joke. (I haven't seen how it went down, I'm just sayin')

We know Hemingway can do that.....I'm more impressed we had a DB in the screen!!

Rich Rod is available?

lets wait and see what O'Brien thinks about TN after the NCAA announces penalties......wait, TN is in the SEC nevermind
|4 years 26 weeks ago||I looks like he is a perfect||
I looks like he is a perfect fit for the west coast.... or gulf coast....or great lake offense

Tune in doesn't sound all that cryptic to me!!!

Time to panic.....thats why Puffy always said: Mo commitments mo problems........

Any chance Hayes can come back next weekend to finish out this class?
|4 years 27 weeks ago||The kid is from Hilliard||
The kid is from Hilliard Davidson which has recently became a perennial state contender with minimal D1 players (beat Glenville in title game last year). They have consistently won with defense. With all of the talent in ohio thats pretty impressive and probably means they play with good fundamentals (which we could have used last year). I know he is not what a lot of fans are looking for but I wouldn't be surprised if he was a solid contributor as described the the projections. Since it took all of 24 hours for him to commit after receiving the offer, it sound like he is all in......
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Very nice but its the SEC||
Very nice but its the SEC they pay way more than that. Might want to add a zero and a "K"
|4 years 27 weeks ago||I agree with a lot of what||
I agree with a lot of what you said but I have a hard time giving him credit for evaluating talent and transferring it to success at Cinci. He was there 3 years so his recuits weren't doing much for those big east champion teams. This year "his" recuits won 4 game in the very bad big east.
Kelly can coach, no doubt. We will see if he can evaluate talent over the next couple years. Personally I hope the paper tiger continues.

How am I going to get any work done. Every time i refresh there is a new update. I guess it will just pile up for the next 2 weeks.
Tom, appreciate the updates...keep'um coming

6'2"/ 240 and runs a 4.6....yes please
Isn't that how the coach in Dazed and Confused described his mother?
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Wow how the tone of this site||
Wow how the tone of this site has changed in the past 8 hours. Very excited about the hire.
Now if we can swing a couple recruits there will be no more complaining........for at least an hour
|4 years 27 weeks ago||Couldn't agree more. Of the||
Couldn't agree more. Of the projected starters, the safety position makes me nervous. Then again......is that anything new?
I still have a feeling Kovacs finds his way onto the field (regardless of where TW plays)
|4 years 28 weeks ago||While honoring all verbals,||
While honoring all verbals, Hoke would tell the kids if he doesn't think they fit into his plans (if you want to play, go somewhere else).
|4 years 28 weeks ago||Tennessee went throuh a very||
Tennessee went throuh a very similar process and timeline last year. All the fans were complaining about being in the dark about recruiting after Dooley was on the job for a couple days. Dooley later indicated he took about a week to evaluate non-committed prospects to be sure they are who he wanted. It took a week or so but they closed strong in recruiting with a non-big name coaching change.
Its hard to be patient but I expect Hoke to add some big names before signing day.
